Makerere University illegally got Shs344Bn from donors


Makerere University received over Shs344 billion from donors but the university officials never declared the money to the Ministry of Finance as required by law.

This emerged as members of the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee engaged officials of the finance ministry over queries arising from the Auditor General’s reports of 2013/2014 and 2014/2015.

Secretary to the Treasury Keith Muhakanizi told PAC members that all this is because some University dons have failed to declare the income and expenditure of the university.

“We need a fundamental reform the on the way public universities are managed across the board.”

The ministry of finance officials also told the committee that a number of ministries and departments received grants and took loans from international institutions without their knowledge
